Im sorry to hear your baby is sick....it is always hard. I know that when my son had his first cold and congestion that we too put a pillow under one end of his mattress to elevate it, used a warm air humidifier, and had to use saline spray and use a nose sirenge (sp?) to clean out the nasty stuff clogging him from breathing good. I also found some vicks baby rub (for use with 3mths and older) used it at night on his chest and back area...it seemed to help. I hope this helps if you haven't already got the answers you needed. Hope all is well soon.
